Planning the trip to California

In just over 2 weeks, Rufus will be at my MIL's having the time of his life and DH and I will be on our way to CA. We've started a list of places to see and things to do. I think we have to extend our trip to 2 months.

First we've got the standard touristy things: San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, Disneyland, Universal Hollywood, Seaworld
Then the not so popular touristy attractions: Knotts Berry Farm, whale watching, maybe Carlsbad for Legoland and shopping

And we plan to do some activities in nature like golfing next to the Pacific, visiting the mountains like Big Bear, and maybe outdoor parks like BalboaAnd can't forget the shopping, brewery, winery, Dave and Busters, and the must eat places like Jack in the Box, JuanBurtos, In and Out Burger.

After all that and in between visits with old friends, we'll relax here in Oceanside at DH's sister's house and enjoy many sunsets over the Pacific ocean.


  1. Sounds like you'll be mostly in the LA / San Diego area, but there's an awful lot more of California to see. Joshua Tree, Kings Canyon, Yosemite, Redwoods NP, Tahoe... the list goes on :-)

  2. Oh my, I think you need a year to see all that! Sounds like a lot of fun :-)
